Obstacles – Discover Challenge

“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” – Ben Carson  

“If you expect life to be easy, challenges will seem difficult. If you accept that challenges may occur, life will be easier.” – Rob Liano

“Convince your enemy that he will gain very little by attacking you; this will diminish his enthusiasm”  – Sun Tzu

“Life throws challenges and every challenge comes with rainbows and lights to conquer it.”  – Amit Ray  

I tried but failed

Again I tried but so many hurdles

Hiccups, thorns, and bristles

Can’t be swayed by their poisons

Can’t be pulled down by their guises  

I strive on, I move on

Focused on the golden fleece

Who lives not far away 

When the obstacles and its allies

Are cut down by my persistent strides

The Daily Post Discover Challenge – Obstacles.

Peace and Love!

      1. As I understood your poem, you have overcome obstacles (your effort) to impress this Golden Fleece. Have I got this completely wrong?
